dnoaksson (652) - , SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2013
Livet är svårt som det är utan att bli lurad av en belgisk öl som med kurvig Chimaykropp får det att rycka i öltarmen och minnen av blöta kvällar att beslöja vardagen. När Valeir Blond lyfter på skumkronan och blottar ett öl som mer smakar flint än guldlockar står man där med lång näsa - fylld av aromer som mest förstärker saknaden efter Chimay. Uttrycket "man vet vad man har men inte vad man får" kunde ha myntats av mig i denna djupa besvikelse, om inte någon annan viktigpetter hunnit före.

chribban (152) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
Yellow beer with a lot of sediment. A four finger high foam with a white color. Smell of yeast, rubber, grapefruit, apples and citrus. Taste: Yeast, grapefruit peel, herbs, dirt, dried fruit and bread. Ok but not my cup of tea!

Skinnyviking (6383) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. High white bubbly (hm) lasting head. Hazy light yellow body. Strong sweet banana aroma plus some spice I cannot figure out. Strange light lemon flavor with a mild bitterness. Thin mouthfeel and surprisingly dry and bitter aftertaste.

corkyrory66 (439) - BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2014
Bière comme on le sait de 6,5 % abv, puisque le brasseur en a aligné 4 sur le même niveau !! Couleur dorée un peu ambrée. Clarté légèrement troublée par un peu de levure. Bulles moyennes pas très nombreuses. Mousse blanche bien crémeuse, avec du blanc d’oeuf en haut. Arômes un peu serrés et courts de pain blanc et butterscotch. 1ère bouche sur un malt un peu grillé, et un houblon d’une amertume un peu plate. Arrière-bouche pinçante. 2ème nez de câpres. 2ème bouche avec un bouquet vraiment faible. 3ème avec de meilleures impressions, davantage sur le malt avec un houblon en arrière-fond. La longueur offre de la marmelade, pomme de terre et du miel de châtaigne. La levure est douce, fine, mais faible. L’alcool est correct pour son niveau, mais ne remonte pas les saveurs. La finale est très linéaire, sans envergure. Conclusion : une bière tout ce qu’il y a de plus banal, avec même des saveurs un peu désagréables. A revoir totalement par le brasseur.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget Nordstan, Gothenburg. Clear orange body, big creamy off-white head. Nose is banana, sweet Belgian ale yeast, hints of bubble gum, burnt rubber and general bad yeastyness. Taste is huge metal tones, overshadowing the sweet pale malts and yeast. Medium body, high carbonation. Bad stuff, hope for the brewer’s sake this one is slightly infected.
